We are an Eco-School. Our Eco Committee are working hard to promote this within our school.

Biodiversity/School grounds: we have a ‘love where you live’ day every half term when the children and staff work really hard with lots of enthusiasm to clear and tidy up their environment. The children in Gardening Club are busily planning what vegetables will be planted this year. Already they have planted carrots, broad beans, onions and garlic. They will also sew more wild flowers when the weather becomes warmer in our 'Wild flower' patch behind the 'Buddy bench'.
Litter: we regularly have Wombling themed litter collections to help keep our playground and playing field litter free.
Healthy living: thanks to Mrs Townson and Mrs Van den Brul we have many lunchtime activities which keep us fit and healthy.
Waste: We recycle all our fruit waste and lunch food waste through the council. We have a silver caddy bin in every classroom for the fruit waste and 3 kerbside bins for the fruit and food waste. These are emptied daily into 2 new wheelie bins which are collected weekly. We are also recycle shoes and ink cartridges and the FROGS have organised two Bag2School clothing collections.
Energy: Our lights around the school turn off automatically which is saving a lot of energy. "The school also takes part in "Earth Hour" every year when all electricity is powered off in classrooms and the children are taught about the importance of not wasting electricity.
Water: Our school taps turn off automatically to ensure we are not wasting water.
Transport: Our school takes part in the 'Golden Boot Challenge.' This challenge encourages the children to use an alternative way to get to school instead of using a car.
